Maily is being touted as “your kid’s first email.”
First impressions: while this video (and app) is all kinds of adorable, I don’t think that email is usually right for the 4-year-old group. For those of you who might think “but it’s just like getting them excited about regular mail!” remember that the regular mail only comes once a day.
That slot-machine behavior of checking email to see if new email has appeared is a real thing. It’s up to you to decide if your child can handle it, and if you think it’s something that needs teaching this early.
